Tests Of Time

Available: September 15, 2003

For his third Criss Cross release with his quintet of up-and-coming stars - trumpeter Jeremy Pelt, tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene, pianist Orrin Evans, and bassist Eric Revis - Ralph Peterson offers his most mature and accomplished album yet.

Like his mentor, Art Blakey, Peterson shapes the flow, stamping a set of primarily original music with his inimitable rhythmic personality.
